Jamaica Crime News, St James: O’Neil and O’Brian Walters, the two brothers from Norwood in St James, who are now reappearing in the St James Parish Court, on charges of murder and shooting, are on the brink of being set free, following a change of statement from the main witness.
The case against the siblings became unsubstantial after the witness gave a change of statement, this has resulted in the Attorney who is representing both brothers pointing out to the court, that there is no reason to continue with the case.
The Freeport police have reported that up to date, a third man, who is said to be the driver of the get-away vehicle, has not been located.
The brothers were taken into custody following a shooting incident which occurred at a Service Station, along Sun Valley Road in Montego Bay, St James, in September of 2016.
The siblings were then charged in connection with the incident which left, one man dead and three other persons nursing gunshot wounds.
After viewing a video footage at the service station, the police stated that Investigations revealed that the description of the men caught on camera, fitted those of the brothers.
The brothers were later picked up and following a series of Identification Parades, they were pointed out and criminal charges were laid against them.
It was pointed out in court that in late September 2016, the Walters brothers, who were in the company of another man, drove to the Service Station in a white motorcar and shot up two other men, who drove on the compound minutes before them.
